Stupefied: The Barney Hoskyns Playlist

Since its a holiday weekend coming up here in the States, and since he put it together, I'm happy to present this week's longer-than-usual Stupefied Playlist, brought to us by the talented music writer, Barney Hoskyns. 

You may know Barney as the author of many great music bio-titles such as:
- Across the Great Divide: The Band and America
- Waiting for the Sun: A Rock and Roll History of Los Angeles
- Lowside of the Road: A Life of Tom Waits
- Hotel California: The True-Life Adventures of Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, Mitchell, Taylor, Browne, Ronstadt, Geffen, the Eagles, and Their Many Friends
- Led Zeppelin: The Oral History of the World's Greatest Rock Band 

And quite a few others...that's some list! 

Not only that, but several years ago, Barney had the foresight and wherewithal to start Rock's Back Pages - an online library/compendium/aggregator of mostly rock culture-based music writing throughout the years, from the 1960's forward. Its an incredible site if you're in research mode, or in need of some interesting reading materials. They currently boast over 22,000 articles and counting. Be sure to pay them a visit and sign up for their mailing list here.

With that, I wish you a happy fourth of July weekend, and send out a big thank you to Mr. Barney Hoskyns!
